21 February 2011
  • DICC also referred to as Informatics Computer School (ICS) Dubai?
  • DICC is a training institute offering short computer and other courses, rather than a tertiary level university college offering degrees.
  • Contact email admission@informaticsdubai.org for enrolment enquiries.
  • Name change in to Institute for Cultural and Scientific Studies (ICSS) in January 2011? DICC website still says Dubai Informatics Computer Centre.
DICC unlicenced degree courses
  • Gulf News reported 20 February 2011 that DICC was offering invalid undergraduate degrees since they don't have the correct licence - However, the KHDA has recently confirmed the DICC has no permit to offer higher education courses.
  • Gulf News tried to get comment from DICC about a case involving students who had enrolled in a BSc in Computer Science degree in 2009 at DICC which turned out not to be what the students expected with a claim of postponed or cancelled exams, and additional unexpected fees. The students were unable to get a satisfactory refund and complained to the KHDA. Gulf News tried but failed to get a comment from DICC. Numerous attempts - telephone calls and a visit to the DICC offices - by Gulf News to get a response from Dr Arezou Mehrabi, Director of DICC, in order to verify the students' complaint proved unsuccessful.
  • Gulf News carried a quote from Mohammed Darwish of the KHDA who said "DICC has an Educational Services Permit from KHDA, but does not have a Higher Education Permit. Therefore, they can't advertise or offer any Higher Education qualifications ..."
  • No information found on DICC website about any degree courses offered (checked 21 February 2011).
  • Other institutes also mentioned in the same report included Campus Educational Institute Dubai, and Al Mihad Educational Institute.
Last update 24 February 2011
General comments - might not apply to Dubai Informatics Computer Center
  • Fees, facilities, education quality varies widely. Allow extra fees for visa, transport, accommodation.
  • Salaries, accommodation, other benefits for lecturer jobs vary substantially. Check contracts carefully for medical, housing, flight allowances, etc.
